About the Artist
Rich Moore has been blessed to be in the art field for over 35 years beginning in high school while attending the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Arts scholarship program. His formal training continued through college in the graphic and fine art fields that eventually led Rich to start his own graphic design business in 1992. Years later he transitioned to working exclusively in fine arts specializing in painting with oils on canvas. His creative art process starts with his faith in the Lord Jesus who created all things, which compels Rich to bring forth artwork that magnifies and showcases the grandeur of creation through his landscape paintings. Rich continues to create works mainly either outdoors (en plein air) with his traveling pochade box or in his Alexandria, Virginia studio.
The submitted portfolio painting “Resplendent Glory” began with a trip to a highpoint over looking an inlet waterway near the Atlantic ocean in North Carolina. After capturing many photographic images of this beautiful scene and through a creative process, Rich saturated key areas in the painting while desaturating others making the cloud the dramatic focal point.
In addition to being a member of The Loft Gallery in historic Occoquan Virginia, many of Rich’s paintings have been juried, selected and exhibited at the Art League Gallery (Torpedo Factory) in Alexandria, Virginia. On a personal note, Rich wants to live out the gift of his Christian faith by coming along side and helping others in his community. His wife Stacey of 33 years, also shares in that joy! Rich is a father of 2, just became a first time granddad and enjoys long walks and hiking trips.
